Greetings and Praise The Lord,

Welcome to the website of New Bethel Baptist Church

Established in 1887, New Bethel Baptist Church continues to be a beacon of light that illuminates the Grace, Mercy, and Power of God. WE welcome you to learn about New Bethel and make plans to join us if you are without a church home. New Bethel is a church that proclaims a Social-Justice Gospel of liberation, salvation, love, and hope while not being ashamed to celebrate the humanity of all and our African-American culture. We look forward to seeing you.

With the Love of Christ

Rev. Dr. Mark M. Whitaker, Pastor & Dr. Ingrid Whitaker, First Lady
